Questions About Diversity
- What do we mean when we refer to diversity in college?
The root word of diversity is from the Latin, "diversus" which means "various". Today we use it to describe an amalgamation of peoples, traditions, cultures and ideas. Students who say that diversity in college is important to them are looking for institutions to offer a variety of curricular and non-curricular opportunities to learn from and learn with people of different ethnicities, races, ages, abilities, sexual identities, classes, and religions.
- How is Barnard doing at supporting and attracting students from all financial backgrounds?
Even a school with high ethnic, racial and geographic diversity may not be diverse when it comes to the economic backgrounds of their students. To get a better idea of how Barnard is supporting low-income students check the Financial Aid Page.
- How important is diversity to Barnard?
Diversity can be encouraged by the college in multiple ways. For one, institutions should be making an effort to hire a diverse faculty to teach students. But the school should also be doing the best they can to promote meaningful interaction between people from differing backgrounds. This prevents students and faculty from becoming isolated and encourages positive connections.
